Giggle Thursday

I've pinched so much from Archie's Archive, I was determined to find my own material for a while, so when I saw this story last night I giggled but tied my blogging fingers together. But this morning I'm still giggling so, with a low curtsey to Archie...

The other night I was invited out for a night with the girls. I promised my husband that I would be home by midnight. Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easy. Just before 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home.

Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hall started up and cuckooed three times. Quickly realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another nine times. I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution (even when totally smashed), in order to escape a possible conflict with him.

The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in and I told him “Midnight.” He didn’t seem pissed off at all. Whew! Got away with that one!

Then he said, “We need a new cuckoo clock.”

When I asked him why, he said, “Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said, “Oh shit,” cuckooed four more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and farted.

Dance Like a Human

This was on the Astronomy Picture of the Day today - not the usual gorgeous shot of stars or galaxies. Instead, an inspiring, heart-swelling video of people dancing. Nice to feel glad to be human for a change. Enjoy (and maybe envy Matt a little, or a lot!)

Just the Thing for a Grotty Saturday

Pinched from the amazing Archie over at Archie's Archive, if this doesn't make you at the very least giggle or, if you are me, have to add incontinence pads to your shopping list, then you are already dead:

Sunshine and Showers

Hmmm - you can tell I'm stumped for anything interesting to write here. Yes, it's quiz time again! What kind of weather are you? The thing about these quizzes is that it's lovely if you come out as something marvellous. A bit like horoscopes, I suppose. You tell people about the good ones. Hence...I am SUNSHINE!



You Are Sunshine



Soothing and calm

You are often held up by others as the ideal

But too much of you, and they'll get burned



You are best known for: your warmth



Your dominant state: connecting

Break Dancing or Break a Leg?

Which dance are you? Go on, you know you want to know. I am surprised but delighted to be break dancing. Highly unlikely that I will ever be seen doing it for real, but in cyber space I'm body popping like mad.



You Are Break Dancing



You are a rebel and a rule breaker.

You are uniquely you, and you expressing your individuality.



And while you're different and a bit weird, you're no slacker.

You're extremely hard working. Having unusual talents is not as easy as it looks!
